Sick Leave in Conjunction with N/S Days

Article Updated December 2013

To call in on a day not in conjunction with a day off, can only be done 43.33% of the days available in a six week period.

The chances of calling in on a day in conjunction with a day off are 56.66%.

Formula:
 5 working days for 6 weeks = 30 days
13 days not in conjunction with N/S days.

13 divided by 30, x 100 =43.33%

17 divided by 30, x 100= 56.66%

So, your chances of calling in sick in conjunction with a day off, is approximately 57% of the time. To call in on a day not in conjunction with a day off can only be done approximately 43% of the time. Management’s argument of, “days in conjunction with a day off…”, falls flat when you look at it and dissect it. I have taken the period of 6 weeks and broken it down in a week by week, and day by day basis. There is more chance of a random call in on a day “in conjunction with” a day off, than calling in on a day not in conjunction with a day off. The percentages used are NOT absolute. They are all based on if the carrier calls in sick on one of the days that are not in conjunction with their SDO.

Break down by week: (2 day call in is assuming call in is on a white day). Percentages may change according to what day the call-ins occur. Call-in percentages are assumed they are not on SDO.

1) Mon/N/S day - 1 day call in = 40% - 2 day call in= 50%
2) Tues/N/S day - 1 day call in= 50% - 2 day call in= 80%
3) Wed/N/S day - 1 day call in= 80% - 2 day call in= 100%
4) Thurs/N/S day - 1 day call in=80% - 2 day call in= 100%
5) Fri/N/S day - 1 day call in= 60% - 2 day call in= 80%
6) Sat/N/S day - 1 day call in= 20% - 2 day call in= 40%
